Beginning fall 2023, Dominican University is partnering with Rydin Decal for parking permit applications, payment, permit distribution, parking enforcement, multi-plate data collection and citation appeals.

Access the portal

Step One: Create an account on the Rydin dashboard. Follow the link above and click on “Register Account.” Please use your Dominican email address to create your account. Your ID number is your Dominican Star Card ID number, without leading zeros.

Step Two: You will then be asked to verify your email. You will receive a link from Follow that link to verify your email.

Step Three: Register your vehicles and contact information. All fields in red are required.

Step Four: Click on “Buy Permits” on the top banner and follow the prompts. Note: permit options are based on your current status and affiliation (Faculty/Staff, Commuter, and Resident). This status has been predetermined and only permits that apply to your specific category will be available for purchase. If you believe this to be an error, please contact

  • Commuter and Faculty/Staff permits will be delivered to the home address provided during the application.
  • Resident permits will be available for pick-up at Campus Safety dispatch next week.

Step Five: Print your temporary permit. You will receive a confirmation email from Rydin about your purchase, and you will also get an email with a link to a temporary parking permit. This permit should be displayed on the left hand (driver's) side of your dashboard until you receive your hang tag.

Please email with any questions.
